Grilled Vegetable Lo Mein Recipe

Yesterday was the first official day of summer, and with the start of summer comes the start of grilling season!

Well hello there friends! Long time, no see!

If you’ve been wondering where the new posts have been for the past week, they were on hold while I took a trip to the east coast.

I started off my trip to New York & Washington DC hosting a Satellite Media Tour with PLUS Media all about Friendsgiving. You can check out several of the segments online at the following links:

Following the media tour, I ventured into New York City to check out some of the best spots to eat in the city. I’m currently compiling all of my favorites into an NYC City Guide that I’ll be sharing in the next couple of weeks on the blog! In the meantime you can check out my Instagram page to see a sneak peak of where all I was eating while in the city!

After leaving NYC, I headed down to Washington DC to eat my way through yet another city! I’ll also be sharing a Washington DC city guide soon with all of my favorite spots to eat in the nations capitol.

I’m now on a plane back to home sweet sunny San Diego. As soon as I arrive home I’ll be heading straight into the kitchen! I have so many awesome recipe ideas that I can’t wait to create, then share with you all for Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving & Thanksgiving leftovers!

Man oh man, the last week of my life has been completely crazy! I got called up to LA by my manager at CMEG to meet with a major network about hosting a new show! I know, right? So freaking awesome!

I took a whirlwind 24 hour trip to LA, met with the network and took the opportunity while I was in town to see some friends. I headed back home to San Diego on Friday morning and back to work.

I did a little work over the weekend and watched some football then woke up this morning and headed to my former college, SDSU, to guest lecture in JMS210: Social Media in Journalism. A class that just started it’s third year on campus.  It’s amazing that this is now a college course!
